It has been a great start to our Give a Gift Christmas Foodbank Appeal, but we need as much help as possible

We’ve had a great start to our Give a Gift Christmas Appeal for Northern Devon Foodbank but there is plenty of time left.

Generous Gazette readers have already begun arriving at our offices with bags and boxes laden with festive treats to help those who are struggling have a happier Christmas.

But there is still lots of room left, so please do dig deep and donate to this worthy cause for North Devon families.

We need items such as fancy biscuits, sweets, chocolate, tinned ham, mince pies, Christmas puddings and any other non-perishable festive treats you can think of.

You can also donate at the foodbanks in Barnstaple (St John’s Hall, Rose Lane), Bideford (Pitt Lane), Ilfracombe (Salvation Army Hall, Torrs Park) and South Molton (YMCA Centre, Mill Street).
